Caring not that Paul’s kitchen cabinet is already groaning with the things, the 13th American Music Awards presented him with a special Award of Merit for his achievements over the last 20 years. An audience of 50 million watched the televised ceremony on 27th January. Phil Collins hosted the British segment of the show, beamed by satellite from London’s Hippodrome Club to AMA headquarters in the US. A happy Paul is pictured with Roger Daltrey, Bob Geldof (who received a special Award of Appreciation for Live Aid) and Phil.
